Right now everything is very exciting, with the earthquakes and the World Cup and all. In the UK, they're preparing not only for the next round, but also for Swamp Soccer. Meanwhile, vulture brains are apparently in demand for good luck among South Africans. Er?

It's also the 40th anniversary of the Glastonbury Festival!  (Is it always muddy there?)

Beyond the mud and earth, NASA has a lovely page where you can, um, "space your face." (I have no idea why.)

Even farther above (or, perhaps, below): the Vatican Hall of Shame lists the worst popes ever.

And finally, something different for those of us who have been known to dress in weird costumes. The Princess Alexa Foundation collects donated costumes, props, and toys for terminally ill children. If anyone needs to escape from reality for a while, it's these kids, so consider contributing to the cause!

I thought the mother ship had landed someplace in rural Ohio, but it was only an earthquake. Buzz kill.
